Elizabeth KeenIndian Line Farm systems include two 30’x96’ greenhouses. This workshop will focus on movable greenhouses, seeding and harvesting methods, packing greens for sale, record keeping, and economics. Marketing discussion will cover sales to farmers markets, stores, and restaurants.


Instructors: Elizabeth Keen farms at Indian Line Farm and has been growing certified naturally grown vegetables for 15 years.  Recently, she has grown winter greens to increase the bottom line and better employ spaces used to grow heat-loving summer crops. Pete Salinetti farms at Woven Roots Farm in Lee, MA, doing wholesale, retail, & CSA.

This is one in a series of workshops on winter growing. To view additional offerings, click here.
